WIP Wednesday-All Sizes

I've been working on this quilt for a little over a month now. Slow and steady is key when you are making so many triangles! The pattern is called All Sizes, which is in my new book, No Scrap Left Behind. (I don't know the exact release date yet, but it's sometime next month. I'm starting to get excited about it! Still plenty nervous...)

It may seem odd to show a WIP of the alternate quilt before I show the original, but I thought that would be kind of fun, actually! This quilt has triangles that finish in 5 different sizes. I've nick-named this version "the bruiser quilt", because of the black and blue color scheme. Hahaha!

Only 137 half-square triangles to go....that's pretty exciting!

Here's a peek at the original quilt, which is quite a bit more colorful and what you would expect of out of me, right? :) The tiny triangles shown finish at 1 1/2"! They are definitely squeal-worthy. Time consuming, but oh-so-cute!

I can't wait to finish up the bruiser quilt and show them side by side! I love exploring the many possibilities within one pattern.

I am such a sucker for HSTs. I love that you can share some "sneak peeks" of your work for the book and hope that you continue to feel more excited and less nervous. :)

Absolutely beautiful! I was making 1 1/2" HSTs last night :) Somehow they're so much cuter when they're that small! I can't wait to see more of your book.
